In 1963-64, I have to admit I was scared to death of OL, especially the monsters. But I couldn't resist watching. It provided a dark kind of balance to the lighter, family or "kiddie" shows on the tube. I've gotten older, I much prefer the 2nd season of OL, especially the monster-free stories. In fact, I picked up an extra copy of the most recent 2nd season release DVD set, just to have it handy in my home office. Maybe I'm tired of the 1st season gothic mood and rubber monsters? Who knows.

It was nice seeing those little trailers here on IA, but I must confess that I never listen to commentaries and only rarely watch interviews or behind-the-scenes material on DVD sets. If anything, deleted scenes or unaired versions of pilots are of most interest to me, but that's about it. I despise commentaries or conversations with "experts" or "historians" because if anyone, I want to hear only from the people who actually *made* the movies or shows. I do know that a lot of people live for DVD extras, though.

Yeah that's VERY true - some 'experts' are just people who like to hear themselves talk...some are excellent. It's very hit-or-miss. For the most part, I'd rather get it straight from the horse's mouth. It's usually more interesting that way.
